Great book - bad scan
many images are missing and I'm not sure why.
This catalog is an important work in the understanding of late 19th century industrial drawing instrument production. continuing on the tradition of craftsmen who marketed their wares by writing the "how to book" to go with it.
It would be nice if they could scan in the images.
The copy scanned has the first page of the copy I own with hand wrighting) but a defferent second page - that's interesting mine came from the Newcastle upon Tyne Unversity library....and the hand writing is identical - so perhaps it really is "with the authors compliments" ...two different copies - same hand writing ...
